LOGAN SQUARE — For the seventh year, Lula Cafe’s Jason Hammel is teaming up with rising local chefs on a special benefit dinner.
This year’s six-course feast, set for March 4, will feature the epicurean talents of Lula’s Hammel, Diana Davila of Mi Tocaya, Joe Frillman of Daisies, Tony Bezsylko and Ethan Pikas of Cellar Door Provisions, Leonard Hollander of Arbor and Matthias Merges of Billy Sunday — a “dream team” of local chefs, according to organizers.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets cost $175 per person with all food, drinks, tax and tip included.
All proceeds will benefit Comfort Station, the multidisciplinary arts space in the heart of Logan Square. Since 2010, the organization has held all manner of art exhibitions, films and concerts, potlucks, workshops and lectures.
Comfort Station’s relies on donations and sponsorships from local patrons and businesses. The annual chef dinner is the largest single source of funding the organization receives each year, according to organizers.
“As Comfort Station’s programming has grown in past years, Logan Square has become a culinary destination in Chicago, and the annual Logan Square Chef’s Dinner reflects the broad array of talent that is located blocks from one another,” the event page reads.
